Avex’s CEO Matsuura Masato, after receiving a flood of flaming tweets that even gave others cold sweat, closed his twitter account. Matsuura who was angered by the arguments of a small number of civilians said, “Because they are people who will not stop until they achieve what they want, I apologize” he left that as his last statement.
What started this matter is the trouble with Tohoshinki’s fans that occurred over and over. The problem involved JYJ who are in the middle of a lawsuit, where one of the songs they created in the past was covered by a Chinese singer and uploaded onto Youtube. The possibility that it was done with authorization from Avex angered JYJ fans. Even when Matsuura denied (T/N: Avex’s involvement) the fans’ attacks did not stop.
Then, (Matsuura wrote) “I’m an idiot for answering you (T/N: literally facing you) but it seems like I’ll become stupid (T/N: if I continue) so I’ll just stop ~explodes laughing~.” Further stirring up the matter, he replied to people who were telling him “I don’t want you to stop” with “JYJ’s this and that (T/N: uses “this and that” which is a slang expression to call JYJ fans) want me to stop ~smile~.” His tweets agitated JYJ fans further. Finally on the 20th of July the Twitter account was erased.
